happiest birthday yet

Hello! I hope you all are having a wonderful day today - this is day 2 of summer/no school and I'm trying to find a good routine. Seems like the kids are a little more high maintenance in the summer, which leads to less crafty time! Booo! But it's so much fun watching them play outside. It's hard to remember that feeling of summertime - the only responsibility is getting home before the street lights come on in the evening.
Today I'm actually participating in Mojo Monday's contest sketch - woo hoo! I'm usually so far behind that I don't get to play in the contest, so I'm SUPER excited! The sketch is Mojo89 and I picked up some old retired paper called Spring Fling (one of my faves) and the hostess set Darling Dots - I think this is the first time I've inked it up! The sentiment is from On Your Birthday.

Have a wonderful day!

recipe -
stamps: on your birthday, darling dots
ink: basic brown, regal rose, riding hood red
paper: regal rose, so saffron, whisper white cardstock, spring fling dsp
